Jasmine

Jasmine oil is an absolute extraction from the flower of the plant. To be technically correct, jasmine is an “essence” not an essential oil, but it is labeled sometimes as jasmine essential oil.

 

Did you know to maximize Jasmines fragrance it must be picked during the evening? After sunrise the fragrance greatly diminishes. This is why in part it was given the name "Queen of the Night".

Because of its popularity and its cost, Jasmine oil is often adulterated. Just to give you an idea of the cost and volume of flowers required to produce jasmine absolute I will provide some figures below:

  • One pound of jasmine oil = 1,000 pounds of jasmine = 3.6 million unpacked blossoms

  • One pound of PURE jasmine oil = therapeutic quality = up to $4,500 per pound

  • One pound of SYNTHETIC jasmine oil = perfume quality = $3.50 per pound

Seeing things in terms of dollars and cents always brings the point home.

Jasmine oil is included in many  of Young Living's blends because of its diversity. From alleviating stress to balancing our emotional wellbeing, jasmine supports us unconditionally.
